A spokesperson from Total Shape emphasized the importance of incorporating fruits and vegetables into a healthy diet. Basically, they acknowledged that pursuing a healthy lifestyle is a big topic across the US. Approximately half of Americans consider themselves healthy eaters.
However, according to the spokesperson, 46% of US adults find healthy eating to be too expensive. Additionally, 23% lack the time to cook or prepare meals, and 20% have a limited understanding of healthy diets.
Contrarily, while the study indicates a positive trend in retail sales of fruits and vegetables, it also highlights a decline in the number of households purchasing fresh produce for certain items.
Lastly, spinach, squash, mushrooms, and cherries experienced notable decreases in household penetration. However, there were areas of growth, with increased consumption of cucumbers, garlic, raspberries, blackberries, mangoes, and kiwis.
